Bits and pieces of my life
Saturday, November 13, 2010      3 comments

A friend I hadn't talked with in awhile asked me today what I've been doing. My mind went mostly blank. Ahhh, the joys of advancing age. LOL Most weeks I volunteer in my grandson's classroom, and at a no-kill animal shelter. I also atte... Read more

For those of you who have been knitting socks for a long time, think back to the first one you did: now you know how excited I am. I successfully (with telephone help from a friend) turned the heel last night and am now working the foot. Yes, I ... Read more

I just did almost 30 minutes of (heavy) housework. Now that is behind me, and I also burned calories....double good! My grandsons were out of school today, and while the younger went to a babysitter's, I watched the older one at his house ... Read more

Sunday, October 31, 2010      1 comments

"This is the day the Lord has made; I WILL rejoice and be glad in it." Our preacher sent an email this week, stating that his sermon was going to be on "Taking Off The Mask" so I wore the t-shirt I got at last year's Extraordinary Women's c... Read more

As promised, here's my report on the baseball tournament...... The team Josh's team played lost a game yesterday, won their first game today, and went on to defeat Josh's team, 7 - 6. BUT, the score is misleading - it really wasn't that cl... Read more
Sunday, after church, before ballgame

I was feeling somewhat virtuous until I tracked my lunch on SP. sigh. Oh well, this evening is a new start. My good feeling came from the fact that I declined to take a 3rd piece of Italian bread and butter-substitute for lunch. Ok, so maybe... Read more
Fun day today

I can tell the antibiotics are beginning to work - but I always take a long time to get fully over a sinus infection. ... Read more
Wed Eve

I finally faced up to it and went to the dr this morning - yes, I do have another sinus infection. Nuts! I'm even running a slight fever - an oddity for me. The good news is that I'm now on an antibiotic; the not-so-great news is that it's on... Read more

Well, we worked really, really hard this week - the bedroom took two coats of paint, then we moved everything back into the room on Friday. I'm so glad to be back in my own bed (the guest room where we slept for over a week is only a double bed... Read more
I'm looking 'up' even though 'things' are not
Tuesday, October 12, 2010      3 comments

I mentioned yesterday that I'm struggling with some issues. Well, none of the situations have changed, but my attitude is a little better. (Thank you to those of you who prayed) . I thank God that He has kept me from gorging on bad-for-me foo... Read more
Monday's moan
Monday, October 11, 2010      3 comments

I've taken a shower just now, so I may begin to feel human again soon. Before my shower, I painted for six hours....just took a 15 minute break for lunch. We're not finished yet, but at least we've made good headway today. That, and the fact... Read more
We started painting the master bedroom today
Saturday, October 09, 2010      2 comments

We had to 'scuff' (sand) all the shiny surfaces (they'd been painted with oil paint), and that took 2-1/2 hrs this morning. After lunch, I crawled around on my hands and knees, painting all the baseboards. That took another 2-1/2 hrs. I'm bus... Read more
bedroom, continued

Yes, we should have painted it before getting new carpet (which looks nice, by the way), but we didn't think of it. We are planning to buy paint shortly and get started on the walls and trim. The carpet does look nice, but is more mustard-colo... Read more

Tuesday, October 05, 2010      4 comments

We're to get new bedroom carpeting tomorrow, so today was move-everything-out-of-the-bed
room day. It took 2-1/2 hrs and I'm bushed! To give you some idea, we have a headboard w/an attached light bridge, all attached to two tall (heavy!) '... Read more

Monday, October 04, 2010      6 comments

I just spent a WONDERFUL weekend in Roanoke, VA at the annual conference. Friday evening we were splitting our sides laughing at Chondra Pierce, then thoroughly enjoyed a mini-concert by Mercy Me. Saturday, we had several inspirational speaker... Read more
